Battle in the Woods

My brother-in-law and fellow nerd Will & I spent the last two days in the woods at my family’s cabin.  Though the weather in Pittsburgh had been oppressively hot, things were perfect out in the woods.

Though we were playing Kill Team, we did manage to field a monstrous creature or two.

We played several games of DA vs. T’au, using all the units we’ve been painting recently and a bunch of terrain we’ve been working on.  Best of all, we were able to play outside.

The surprise stars of the trip, though, were the 2-0 Plague Marines!  Though they fielded only six models, they only lost one of them in the two games.  In 8th edition they are hard as nails, especially against small arms fire.  The 5S really helps neutralize the powerful T’au guns.  It might take them three turns to find an enemy they can shoot, but…

T'au About to Die

Here sit six firewarriors and a 5W cadre fireblade.  Eighteen 4+ 5S shots, three 2+ 5S shots.  My terminator teleport struck, charged, and tied this entire force up for two turns.  A marine with a plague belcher chugged up to the fight on turn four, turned a few of the firewarriors to goop, and that was that.  Hail Papa Nurgle!
